Did you know that nine out of 10 adult women suffer from cellulite?
Having cellulite is one of the most frustrating things about being a woman, and there has never been anything we could do about it – until now.
There is finally a cellulite injection treatment available for women that has been shown to treat and reduce the appearance and severity of cellulite.
First off, what is cellulite?
It is commonly thought that cellulite is solely caused by fat, and that losing weight is essentially the only solution to reducing its appearance. However, this is not the case. As women age, the skin gets thinner, fat cells get larger, and the fibrous bands that are underneath the skin’s surface get thicker and cause tension — all of which cause that dimpled appearance in certain areas of the body, especially on the butt.
Women are more likely to have cellulite than men, and it affects those of all shapes, sizes, ages, races and ethnicities. Women are more prone to developing cellulite because they have thinner skin than men, more fatty deposits in the thigh and buttock areas, as well as different orientation of the collagen and fibrous bands. Essentially, women’s bodies are more prone to having the ability of fat lobules to bulge through the areas of the body that have more fatty deposits, most commonly the thigh and buttock areas.
Introducing the first-ever cellulite injection treatment called QWO
For the first time, we are ready to say hello to QWO and goodbye to dimples and cellulite.
Pronounced like “whoa” (insert Joey Tribbiani reference here), QWO is the first treatment of its kind, specifically for adult women.
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved cellulite injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in women’s buttocks.
How does QWO work?
QWO is made from enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes are thought to treat dimpled areas by targeting the bands and other structural causes under the skin where the cellulite starts. Essentially, the injection is thought to break down fibrous bands and old collagen particles, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate the growth of new collagen. This results in a smoother surface to the skin, with the possibility of eliminating dimples in the treatment area.
How many QWO treatments will you need?
QWO is a non-surgical cellulite injection administered in a doctor’s office. Patients should have three treatment visits with 21 days in between each QWO cellulite injection treatment.
How much time is needed for a QWO treatment?
This minimally-invasive procedure is appealing as it is, but to make it even better, the lunch break procedure only takes about 10 minutes or less, and there is no downtime — so no need to take off of work, and in just 2 months you will have improved and smoothed out your cellulite.
Is there downtime with QWO?
Bruising is to be expected and possible redness at the injection site, but nothing is unbearable following the treatment, and you can return to your day as normal.
Women have been eager for a cellulite treatment for a while now, and QWO is an exciting new treatment.
It looks like we can finally stop wasting money on topicals, scrubs and other products that claim to reduce cellulite (when they do nothing in reality).
Just in time for wearing a bathing suit on the beach this summer, we are ready to say “whoa” to QWO!
Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, Webex, Teams… whatever platform you’ve been using to stay connected, video conferencing has become the new normal for working, socializing and staying in touch with others remotely.
In this new virtual way of life, we seem to be constantly on screen.
While you may not have to leave your house to attend work meetings or talk with family or friends anymore, you might be feeling the need to improve your appearance on camera.
Are your forehead wrinkles the only thing you see during your video call?
Are your “11” lines making you look angry?
Maybe you hate seeing your double chin, or the fact that you always look tired, even if you have makeup on.
Do you wish there was a way to get rid of those unwanted lines, hollow cheeks, or extra layer of quarantine fat without any surgery or downtime?
Your wish might not be too far out of reach with the right medical spa treatments.
There are multiple non-surgical medspa treatments available now that do not require any days off from work and have very little to no downtime.
These highly coveted treatments are FDA approved and have helped millions around the world feel more comfortable in their own skin, especially when on camera all day.
You can feel more confident during your next video conference without anyone knowing that you had work done, and you don’t have to miss a beat.
Let’s dive into some areas you may be wanting to improve or enhance:
Medspa Treatment for Loss of Volume
Need a lift? Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler that can help improve volume loss in the mid-face, cheek and eye area for a more youthful appearance.
This medspa treatment can help contour the face, create more defined cheekbones, lift any sunken areas of the face, and brighten up tired-looking eyes for an improved, fresh-faced appearance both on and off the screen.
Medspa Treatment for Wrinkles and Folds
Tired of obsessing over the defined lines around your mouth?
Coolsculpting can fix your double chin with its innovative, nonsurgical fat reduction technology.

There is no denying that laser hair removal treatments will help you get rid of unwanted hair on your legs, arms, bikini area, face, chest and back.
While laser hair removal can be done at any time of year, the winter season is the best time to begin.
Here are three benefits to starting laser hair removal in the winter.
If you begin laser hair removal in the winter, by the time the warm weather arrives you will have reached optimum results.
During the winter, there is less chance your skin will be exposed to the sun. When getting laser hair removal, it is not recommended to have treatments done on skin with active sun exposure or sunburn.
After treatment, you need to keep the targeted areas of your body out of sunlight. It is easier to do so in the winter because you will most likely be wearing more clothing.
Microneedling, also know as Collagen Induction Therapy is a medical aesthetic procedure that uses very small needles to repeatedly penetrate layers of the skin in order to create a wound healing cascade.
This results in microscopic holes or microchannels in the dermis.
This treatment improves the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tone and texture.
History of Microneedling:
In the 1950’s mesotherapy was discovered by Dr. Michel Pistor. He used a meso device with one needle.
He came up with the concept that pricking the skin would promote collagen formation.
Then in 1995, subcision came around which was a new method of treating depressed scars and wrinkles.
Following subcision, came needle dermabrasion in 1997.
This treatment involved using a tattoo pistol to treat scars.
Patients saw improvement in scar texture, appearance and color, however this treatment was very time and labor intensive due to use of only one needle.
In 1998, Dr. Des Fernandes from South Africa developed a small needling stamping device and presented his study on needling at a conference in San Francisco.
By the year 2000, the first medical Microneedling device called the Dermaroller was invented by Horst Liebl.
This device consisted of many fine needles on a drum shaped roller.
By the mid-2000’s, Microneedling grew popular in medical offices, medspas, and with patients.
In 2018, the SkinPen Microneedling device was FDA cleared to improve the appearance of acne scars of adults 22 years of age and older.
It was designed for use by licensed healthcare practitioners or individuals directed by practitioners.
The science behind the Microneedling treatment
The skin goes through three phases of wound healing.
First the skin is injured which causes inflammation and releases growth factors.
Then the tissue goes into the proliferation phase where the fibroblasts release growth factors, glycoproteins, and collagen causing the epidermal cells to migrate to the wound.
Then tissue and capillaries form, and fibroblasts continue to proliferate.
In this phase, the dermal thickness increases.
In the last phase of microneedling wound healing, the tissue is remodeled which causes a skin tightening effect by promoting fresh new collagen.
Complete tissue remodeling can take place from 3 weeks to 1 year.
Most remodeling completes after 6 months.
A study by Fernandes, D. Oral showed 400% more collagen was produced after 6 months following a Microneedling treatment.
Microneedling for Wrinkles & Acne Scars
As we age, our skin thins and our epidermal layer of skin thickness decreases.
One study showed that the thickness of collagen in a 2 year old dermis is about 1.37 um vs. the thickness of collagen in a 90 year old has an average of .52 um.
The collagen loss surrounding the scar creates a cave like and shadowing appearance
When combining the effects of aging skin with uneven acne scars, the result is a more prominent appearance of acne scars.
With Microneedling, the wound healing process creates collagen and increases the thickness of the dermis to create a more a youthful appearance as well as helps to repair acne scars.
To reduce the appearance of acne scars in adults and improve the appearance of surrounding skin, you must treat both effectively.
What is the best and safest medical grade Microneedling device?
The SkinPen is the only FDA cleared and legally marketed automated, non-surgical Microneedling device on the market. It is proven safe and effective to treat and improve the appearance of acne scars in adults aged 22 and older.
What are some side effects of Microneedling?
Dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness and burning are some of the side effects that some patients have seen last from 1 to 6 days post Microneedling.
How will my skin look after Microneedling?
Your skin may have an appearance of a mild sunburn to moderate sunburn.
What are the contraindications for Microneedling or reason why someone should not receive a Microneedling treatment?
Patients who have the following should not receive Microneedling: – Have active skin cancer in the treatment area – Have open wounds, sore, or irritated skin in the treatment area – Have an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetic – Have a hemorrhagic bleeding disorder or a hemostatic bleeding dysfunction. – Are pregnant or nursing – Are currently taking drugs with ingredients of isotretinoin such as Accutane.
What areas can not be Microneedled?
Microneedling should not be done around the orbital rim such as the eye lids.
How should I prepare for a Microneedling treatment?
Avoid excessive sun exposure. No sunburn. Discontinue to use topical retinoids 24 hours prior to Microneedling. Avoid treatment if you have active breakouts or open lesions. Allow 24 hours after auto immune therapy. Wait at least 6 months before oral isotretinoin use.
What to avoid after Microneedling?
You should avoid sweaty exercise and sun exposure 72 hours post your Microneedling treatment. In addition, you should avoid other facial treatments for a month after Microneedling.
Which products should I use post Microneedling?
You should use Vitamin C as it is a great antioxidant and helps with rebuilding collagen. Vitamin A is also recommended to use after Microneedling as it promotes cell turnover, decreases collagen degradation, and helps to thicken the dermal layer. Also, copper with peptides as it plays a role in the production of collagen and elastin that the body is not able to produce by itself. Other products that would benefit are Magnesium, as it is a great atioxidant, Zinc because it helps to reduce inflammation and promotes collagen production, and Ginger Extact because it prevents further damage to the skin caused by UV exposure.
Why are good skin care products so important to use after Microneedling?
They can help reduce inflammation, provide moisture, aid in wound healing, improve and maintain aesthetic procedure outcomes, and reduce the risk of potential complications.
Which products or ingredients should I avoid using after Microneedling?
Ingredients known to increase inflammation should be avoided as well as those that hinder the skin’s ability to repair and remodel. These include: – Formaldehyde releasing preservatives – Silicone/Methicone/Dimethicone – Dyes – Fragrances – Petroleum – Glycol – Sulphates – Mineral Oil – Parabens – Citrus derived preservatives It is best to follow the post treatment instructions and products recommended to you by your medical aesthetic provider.
What is the difference between a Dermaroller and a Microneedling pen?
A Dermaroller is an over the counter needling device and Microneedling pen is a medical aesthetic device only allowed to be used in medical aesthetic practices.
What is better Dermarolling or Microneedling?
Mechanical microneedling with an FDA cleared Microneedling device such as the SkinPen produces more microchannels with one pass than created by a Dermaroller with many passes.
How long does it take for the micro-channels created during Microneedling to close after treatment?
One study showed that microchannels created during Microneedling close after 24 hours.
How deep into the skin does Microneedling penetrate?
The SkinPen microneedling device is able to go up to 2.5 mm which is the highest depth of penetration that is proven safe for patients.
“Bacne” and back acne scarring are among the many new sought after treatments in the skin care field.
Whether you experience active acne or acne scarring on the back, or both, there are solutions out there that have worked wonders with clearing up the skin and improve hyperpigmentation.
The most effective treatments today include the VI Peel, Hydrafacial and Microneedling.
VI Peel For Bacne
The VI Peel is a gentle but powerful medical grade chemical peel that can be be customized with boosters to treat many different skin care concerns from hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, texture, wrinkles, acne, and bacne.
This aesthetic procedure can be performed on the face, neck, chest and back.
It’s extremely effective in treating “bacne” and back acne scars.
The VI peel works by creating micro-damage to the skin’s top layer, causing peeling which in turns stimulates new tissue growth, shedding off old unhealthy skin and bringing out new healthy skin.
Because of the thicker skin on the back, peeling starts around day 7 and can last 4-7 days.
Due to the longer peeling duration, back peels should be done every 6-8 weeks and a series of 2-6 treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Microneedling For Back Acne
Microneedling is a great treatment option for back acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, minimizing pore size and fine lines and wrinkles.
It involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles to stimulate an immune response from the body to produce new collagen and elastin to heal the injured areas leaving the skin rejuvenated and corrected of inconsistencies.
Healing time takes about 5-7 days with minimal down time and a series of 3 is recommended for optimal results.
Minor side effects should be expected after this treatment, such as redness, bruising or inflammation, but usually clear up in a few days
Hydrafacial For The Back
The Clarifying Hydrafacial is another treatment option for “Bacne” and can be done in conjunction with either the VI Peel or Microneedling.
This treatment uses a combination of glycolic acid, salicylic acid and Blue LED light therapy to target bacteria, decongest the skin and control oil production.
First, the back is deeply cleansed, softening the sebum to aid in extractions and remove any impurities.
With a vortex tip, the skin is exfoliated with a gentle glycolic and salicylic acid peel.
Afterwards comes extractions, followed by hydrating the skin with hyaluronic acid, detoxifying antioxidants, and firming peptides for deep moisturization and hydration.
The HydraFacial treatment for the back leaves skin looking healthy and hydrated.
Monthly treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Acne and acne scarring on the face and the body can be extremely frustrating and leave you feeling self-conscious.
With the help of a physician and medical aesthetician, they can customize a treatment plan to get your back acne under control and help you start feeling your best.

Clear + Brilliant Laser: Clear Away Sun Damage And Improve Skin Texture

It’s a great treatment for to combat the early signs of aging, improve skin tone, texture, reduce sun damage, and minimizes pores. The Clear and Brilliant treatment takes about 20 minutes.
VI Peel: Reveal A New And Fresh Complexion
VI Peels uncover a new layer to your skin, improving the tone, texture, and clarity. This peel treatment is painless and includes a combination of TCA (trichoroacetic acid), Vitamin A (retinoic acid), Salicylic acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C (l-ascrobic acid) that is brushed onto your face, chest, or back, left to set for several minutes, and then gently removed. The VI Peel is safe for all skin types and reduces hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles, and melasma while stimulating the production of collagen. In addition to the regular VI Peel, there is another one specifically that targets acne and reduces blemishes called the VI Purify. Following your treatment, you are sent home with after care post peel products that include a moisturizer, sun screen, and an anti-itch cream as about two or three days later, you will start to see dead skin cells flake off from your face over the course of two to three days. But, that downtime will be worth it once you see your newer and more vibrant skin.
Microneedling: Resurfacing Treatment
Microneedling uses a powerful surgical grade micro pen with tiny needles that creates controlled, superficial micro-injuries which tighten up pores and cause production of collagen and elastin. This resurfacing treatment reduces the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and textural issues making this one of the hottest correcting and anti-aging treatments that is highly sought after. Treatment time is about thirty minutes. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will look red and subside over the course of two to three days.

Dermaplaning the face has taken flight in popularity, and with reason.
This quick and painless procedure exfoliates the face, instantly leaving the skin smooth and soft for a glowy finish and flawless makeup application.
If your face is looking dull, it could be from the top layer of the skin’s exposure to UV rays, environmental toxins and other irritants that clog the pores and create dead skin cell buildup.
Dermaplaning removes this top layer of skin to reveal smooth and glowing skin.
What is Dermaplaning?
The dermaplaning procedure is an exfoliation method using a scalpel to essentially remove dead skin cells, peach fuzz and unwanted hair from the face.
This technique is safely performed with a special scalpel that is specifically designed for dermaplaning.
After the skin is prepped, the technician will gently scrape the skin to remove dead skin cells and any impurities, without any abrasion or downtime.
Dermaplaning is a great way to prepare for an important social event, photo shoot, or television appearance because makeup goes on smoother without having that extra vellus hair.
It can be done on it’s own, or added to other facial treatments such as before a chemical peel or a Hydrafacial.
If you aren’t convinced yet, here are the answers to some questions you may have about the dermaplaning procedure:
Freqently Asked Dermaplaning Questions:
Which area can I get dermaplaning done?
Dermaplaning is performed on the face, under the chin and sides of the neck. It is not recommended for the eyelids, chest or anywhere other than the face.
How often should I get the treatment?
You can expect for the results of dermaplaning to last anywhere between two weeks to a month. Results will depend on each client’s individual hair growth cycle.
Will dermaplaning cause more hair to grow?
As some patients may worry that facial hair will grow back thicker, darker or faster, this is not true. The soft, fine hairs that grow on the face (AKA vellus hairs) do not grow back the same as the type of hair on our head, underarms, legs and pubic areas (AKA Terminal hairs). Any type of hair removal process will not alter the type or growth process of the vellus hairs on our face.
Will dermaplaning remove my tan?
Dermaplaning does not remove a natural tan, but will remove a spray tan. With any method of exfoliation, direct sun or tanning should be avoided after treatment. The procedure will not be performed on burned skin.
Which is better dermaplaning or microdermabrasion?
While microdermabrasion created similar results to dermaplaning, the procedure uses a rougher surface to smooth out the skin. Microdermabrasion creates abrasion, pressure and suction during the treatment and may leave your skin with slight redness and/or irritation. Unlike dermaplaning, the process does not remove the vellus hairs from the face, and you may need several appointments to get your desired results. With dermaplaning, the results are immediate and do not leave you with redness or irritation. Both procedures leave your face with a smooth canvas, but dermaplaning could be less harsh for your skin when compared to microdermabrasion.
Which is better dermaplaning or waxing?
Waxing is a popular, tried and true method of hair removal, but can be painful and unpredictable at times. It can sometimes cause over-exfoliation, irritation, and redness if not done correctly. Unlike dermaplaning, waxing will remove the hair first, and then exfoliate second. Also, waxing is best for dark/coarse hair removal for a longer period of time, while dermaplaning can be done on all skin types. Dermaplaning offers an instant glow, smoother skin, allows for better makeup application and better product penetration.
How much does dermaplaning cost?
Dermaplaning costs on average $100 on its own for one treatment, or can be added to another facial treatment for around $50.
If you are looking for a painless exfoliation method to get super smooth, radiant skin, dermaplaning is a great, safe and quick way to achieve your desired results.
